Scholarship Application Process

Application Deadline: January 25, 2018 (5pm)

Step 1
Step 2

NOTE: This step does not need to be completed by the application deadline. Following the scholarship selection process, students who are awarded a scholarship will complete this step.

For current GT Students:

  • Apply to the appropriate study abroad program via the Office of International Education (OIE)
  • Send an email to projectgo [at] when this process is complete.

For Non-GT Students:

  • Complete the Georgia Tech transient student application process. Students should use the Transient Student Application Instructions to assist with this process.
  • Please note that this portion of the application process may take 1-2 weeks as Georgia Tech admissions must approve your application before you can apply to the appropriate study abroad program. For that reason, you need to start this process as soon as possible following the award of a Project GO scholarship. Read the Transient Student Application Instructions and make sure you can gather all the needed documents quickly as the deadline for completing your application is March 1st.
